About Taming the Wild

About us dog training taming the wild

Many dog trainers tend to either take an unscientific approach or overplay using only positive methods and thus fail to focus on sustainable transformation.

At Taming the Wild, our passion is to provide a genuine, welcoming, scientifically based, and supportive training environment for owners and their dogs, which allows them to both thrive and connect with each other.

Our History

Founded in 2012 by Kira and Bryan Bailey, Taming The Wild fuses over 40 years of Bryan’s experience as a professional trainer and expert in predatory social behavior with Kira’s experience with luxury hotels to make every client feel like family.
